The activity described in my "clinical nugget" is probably most appropriate for teens and adults, but yes, choral reading is an important concept for children who stutter as well. It is sometimes recommended that if reading out loud is required in the classroom, the children are paired-up to read together or everyone reads in unison. A child who stutters will typically be much more fluent under these conditions. I would also suggest that nursery rhymes and poetry be used as choral reading for young readers - in therapy and with parents.
